great course, awful pace of play because of tournament

Goflnow did not warn me that my 'hot deal' tee time would put me behind a 36 hole tournament. I knew it'd be tough to get all 18 in due to darkness but I didn't know it would be impossible because of the tournament.

I feel like I got ripped off a bit. It wasn't a deal at all.

Ignoring that, the course is great and I'd love to play it again at a normal pace of play

Too many players

The course had too many players - supposed to have a 1:20 tee time - got off at 1:35. Pace of play was very slow with four groups on a short par three. Never saw a ranger thru 8 holes. Unable to finish 18 holes. Appears that pro shop just over booked the course. Course conditions were very good but will not return to Orang National as the result of over booking.

Cancelled

Unfortunately, I was unable to play the course. I slightly sprained my left wrist the day before and could not swing a club. The course cancelled my tee time and said they would credit my credit card back the fee even though I had to cancel 21 hours before the round. Their policy is 24 hours, but they did not debate that issue with me. Nice people. Have played Crooked Cat in past trips down to Florida. Wanted to play Panther Lake badly.

Good day!

The course was in really good shape. The greens weren’t cut in the morning so they were a little grainy and slower than normal. But we did play on Monday after a Holiday weekend so it’s understandable. The staff were great as usual, plus it was so nice to see a cart girl early in the morning on a Monday. I would definitely recommend OCN!

Great Course

First time playing this course. Won’t be the last. Very nice course with a great layout. There were some overly wet areas thanks to Ian and Nicole and the greens were a little slower than I expected. Pace of play was a bit slow as well but was made aware of that at the pro shop and they offered me the option of playing Crooked Cat. Since CC was cart path only I decided to stick with Panther Lake. Glad I did. Will definitely be back.

Lightning Round!

Our 3some was first off at sunrise and we finished in under 2 1/2 hrs. We actually had to wait on a couple holes while they replaced the pins, or finished mowing the green, but not for long.
